Color Farm By Lois Ehlert

You can see this book by clicking on the title!

This is a great picture book for beginner students. It is simple yet fun! The student can look at the colors, the shapes and animals. The best visuals for ELL students are pictures with "real" things, I think. However, this book's design of the animals is pretty accurate. I particularly love the cut-outs inside so you can see the same shape in three different colors, so when all you can practice is "square" or "green" over and over, you get variations.

I also find it useful to show all students how drawing is all about shapes.

I recommend this book for the classroom library.
